Rappers have long been flaunting their wealth and fame since the formation of the musical genre so many decades ago. These days, most rappers spend their time drinking purple drank, snorting cocaine, selling cocaine, and having sex with as many women as possible. At least that is what their lyrics want you to believe. Now that may be true in some cases, but most are just working their butts off trying to make it big and stay relevant. Some rappers, however, have managed to acquire so much wealth that it is simply astounding. Here are ten of the richest rappers in the world.
Lil Wayne, born Dwayne Carter Jr., is currently worth an impressive $135 million. He began his rapping career at the tender age of 9 before signing with Cash Money Records. Since then, his music career has gone nowhere but up. He was recently awarded the key to the city in Lafayette, LA.
Snoop Dogg has been one of the most influential artists within the rap genre for decades now. The rapper with the bizarre name is currently worth $135 million. He was discovered by Dr. Dre, who helped launch his rapping career.
